My close friend Reid from www.readreidread.com once asked me what 100% of the dandelion in front of us was as we sat in an open field. I began to study the little plant. ”Well, it’s not just what you see on the surface”, I replied.
We determined that the dandelion would die if it weren’t for the soil, rain and sunlight so that is part of it. The Earth that the plant is embedded in isn’t just the soil beneath the surface; it is the entire Earth. So is the dandelion the entire Earth? What does the Earth exist within? Could the Earth exist without the Sun? Our Sun orbits another larger central Sun called Sirius Canicula. This dandelion does not seem to end.
We, the observe play a role in the dandelions existence as well. Without the observer, things could exist but to what extent? Would it matter? In observing the dandelion we noticed that it is not just petals, stem and roots. That is just the beginning. 100% of any one apparent thing is the totality of all things. Forces seen and unseen interconnected yet appearing function independently.
Think about this today as you ask yourself what 100% of YOU is. You may be surprised to find out that you are more than you may have initially thought.
